Lingerie | Foxy comfy: a review of Foxers Aurora blue bralette and shorts


Foxers is known for their loungewear pieces, particularly their women lacey boxers, 
so I was eager to find out what the fuss was all about!

I got to try three pieces from the Aurora Blue (couldn't resist my favorite color!) range:
lace top bralette in size L and two matching bottoms in size XS: the cotton boyshorts and the lace boxers.

Let's see how they worked out in the rest of the review, shall we?


A Foxers é uma empresa americana conhecida pelas suas peças de roupa interior descontraídas,
nomeadamente os boxers para mulher!

Eu tive oportunidade de experimentar três peças na tonalidade "Aurora Blue" (a minha cor favorita!!!),
um top de renda no tamanho L (que tive de apertar uns 10 cm na banda),
e dois modelos de boxers, um de renda e outro de algodão, ambos no tamanho XS.

O conforto foi, sem dúvida, aquilo que mais me saltou à vista ao toque: a renda é extremamente macia,
além de ter uma tonalidade belíssima ao vivo e um padrão floral muito romântico!
Adicionalmente, adorei os pequenos detalhes em cinzento 
(incluindo os pequeninos alces das alças do top e das bandas elásticas dos boxers!).
São peças fantásticas para usar em casa, sem prescindir da estética!

Se adoram tops destes, há uma selecção enorme de cores à vossa espera aqui...o difícil é escolher!
(A tonalidade "French Rose" é particularmente perfeita para o Dia dos Namorados, não acham?)

E vocês, gostam deste tipo de "loungewear"?

CONSTRUCTION

The two lace pieces are made of a sheer stretchable lace (90% nylon and 10% spandex).
The top has triangle cups with one vertical seam and features fully adjustable thin straps.


The lace boxers feature a strategically positioned double layer panel for modesty, 
so you can wear them with nothing underneath, without facing complete sheerness.


The boyshorts are made of 100% cotton and have a ruching detail in the back, as pictured.
The waistband of both bottoms is 100% cotton and comfortably stretchable.

APPEARANCE

The lace Foxers uses is not only super comfortable, but also quite beautiful!
The floral lace is delicate and romantic, with a sheen finish to it!


The top's straps and the bottoms' waistbands are white with a grey elk print,
which matches the cute little grey bows used to decorate the straps, the back of both bottoms,
and the front of the boyshorts.


I love how detailed and cute the boyshorts are,
with two cute buttons at the front and a grey lace finishing,
making them the perfect mix between masculine and feminine!


FIT

My dress size is 8 UK/4 US and I usually wear 28FF UK bras, 
therefore, looking up at Foxers' chart, I opted for the XS for the bottoms and the L for the top 
(I was afraid that the M would be too small in the cups, 
even though I knew the L would probably be too big in the band!).


As I suspected, I had to arrange the band of the top, so it could fit my tiny ribcage.
This process made the top fit me better, but I think the M wouldn't been a bad choice either!
It would probably offer less coverage, though.


As expected from a bralette, the shape provided is quite natural,
and since the lace is so stretchable it adapts to a variety of boob shapes!


The cups are nicely deep, allowing for projection even at the bottom.
I could use a little less wideness, since I have narrow roots, 
but I believe sizing down would make the top too cleavagey for my personal taste. 


As for the bottoms, the XS fitted amazingly in both models...


...they feel very comfortable and are quite flattering as well...
and that comes from a die hard fan of thongs!
(It's worth noting that there are some thongs over at Foxers too!)


CONCLUSIONS

Foxers managed to create a great balance between comfort and beauty,
between masculine and feminine...
I've turned into a fan of these loungewear pieces!

They offer a wide range of models and colors
and appear to have a nice price/quality ratio as well!


You can get your own bralettes and boxers from sizes XS to XXL.

If you're feeling inspired by Valentine's Day, 
check this lovely "French Rose" colorway...I think it's perfect!
